“Supercharged” PS4 With 2 Terabyte Hard Disk Offered by GameStop

on July 26, 2015 3:32 PM

GameStop started selling PS4 consoles from its “premium refurbished” batch with a “supercharged” label and a 2 terabyte hard disk drive built in.

The consoles can be found online here, and cost $479.99.

While it saves you the time to swap your hard drive yourself, the price may be considered a bit high. “Premium refurbished” PS4 units with their normal 500 gigabytes hard disk drives cost $359.99, meaning that you pay $120 for the HDD and the pretty simple assembly operation.

Considering that 2.5 inches 2 terabyte hard disk drives can be easily found for $100 or even less nowadays, and that you’re still purchasing a refurbished console and not a new one, your mileage may vary on the value of the offer.

There’s also the fact that the retailer does not list the model and manufacturer of the hard disk drives used, differently from its previously released Supercharged PS3 units, that came with a 500 GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue HDD.

Yet, if you want a big storage, and can’t be bothered to do the swap yourself, this option exists.
